Kids Draw Stick Figure Sketches Of 'Bad Guy' To Help Catch Suspect
Connecticut police are sharing graphic sketches from young witnesses to a motorcycle crash.
Connecticut police searching for a motorcycle operator who left the scene of an accident got help from a trio of children, who drew detailed crayon sketches of the alleged suspect.
Officers responded to a one-vehicle motorcycle crash that took place at around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on a turnpike near Woodlawn Road, according to The Hartford Courant. But before they arrived, police say that the motorcycle operator jumped a guardrail and ran into the woods. Despite an extensive search, police were unable to locate him.
Police posted on Facebook that three young children — Myla, Joyce, and Julian — were playing at a nearby trailer park when they witnessed the accident.
The children were able to give investigators vivid descriptions of the suspect, down to the last detail. Their stick figure drawings show a suspect with a bloody face, cargo shorts, and a black shirt.
"All three of them got the bloody face down," Officer Tom Bobok said.
He said that the children "kind of timidly" approached officers on the scene and handed them their drawings. Police later posted the drawings on the department's Facebook page.
They have asked anyone with information about the identity of the individuals in the drawings to contact Berlin Police at (860) 828-7082.
